Currently, PLAN (Psychology, Law and Neurodevelopment Research and Policy Group at U of G) are inviting youth and young adults between the ages of 12 and 24 with fetal alcohol spectrum disorder (FASD) to participate in a study. Youth are eligible to participate whether or not they have had actual contact with the criminal justice system as our study asks about both hypothetical and real-world legal decisions. Youth will be asked to answer questions relevant to their own past experiences. In order to participate, youth must be able to speak English and must currently reside in Canada.
Interested individuals can contact us directly by email: PLANLab@uoguelph.ca or by telephone at 519-824-4120 ext. 53622.
